Ticking sound after cam swap
Problem here are:
I swap the intake cam of my Zx-10r 2004 with race intake cam (2008) and degreed the cams at 108 for intake and 103 for exhaust.
Check and recheck and readjusted the valve clearance but the mofo, continue to make valve noise.
The tappet are all O.K no retainer busted and valve clearance well adjusted.
Seem that's a current problem when a race cam are installed, but this bother me, I want to found the solution.
It's worse when the bike are cold and around 4-5,000 rpm. I will recheck the valve clearance but I don't think that's the problem, oh and no I don't swap the tappet.
This thing drive me nuts.
Anybody got this problem and found the solution ....garth 285 where are you.
